Attachment to Place and Migration Prospects: A Developmental Perspective.
Elder, Glen H., Jr.; And Others
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v6 n4 p397-425 1996
Studied families in the Iowa Youth and Family Project for the social and developmental pathways by which adolescents approach decisions to relocate. Found that lack of socioeconomic opportunity, relatively weak and declining ties to family and religious community, and strong educational prospects were potent factors. Also found that plans to migrate are linked to elevated feelings of unhappiness. (EV)
